About Us

 

 

 

ASC Mission Statement: The mission of the Alzheimer’s Services Center is to enhance and prolong the highest quality of life possible for persons with Alzheimer’s disease and other related disorders and for their families.

 

Our History: The Alzheimer’s Services Center was organized by its’ founder, the late Mrs. Janice A. Coye. Mrs. Coye started operations in a three room building in 1990. After relocating to several other facilities, soliciting support by way of donations, land, state and federal grants, she was able to realize her dream and made the final move into a newly constructed 12,000 square foot building in June 2010. The new Center has three separate activity rooms, a barber and beauty salon, a separate, fully equipped kitchen for the clients to use, an enclosed courtyard with benches, a beautiful fountain, and an outside walking trail. The new Center has afforded us the opportunity to provide additional and requested services. One such service is weekend respite. Weekend respite is now offered two weekends of every month at highly reduced costs. We have continued on our mission to research and implement new techniques and procedures when caring for the Alzheimer’s client. Our founder paved a detailed path for us to travel in our quest for providing the best possible service to our clients, caregivers and friends. Under the leadership of our current and new Executive Director, Constance Daise, we are now building on that path and offering additional models and beneficial methods of care.

 

Our Accomplishments: In an ongoing effort to provide our clients and caregivers with the best services possible, the Alzheimer’s Services Center’s staff is continually looking for ways to improve this vital and much needed service driven Adult Day Care Center.
